    Yeah, me neither.
    256 m/s in a laden T9?! Those thrusters have been to Palin...
    Then again, so have those on my T6
    With my keybindings, I'm more likely to hit boost by mistake when leaving the station (before I've aligned with the airlock), as I use the lateral thrusters on landing and those are bound to keys well away from the boost button. My landing gear is also very far away from the boost button. (I fly using keyboard only which is good for having ready access to different controls and my Tab key is boost, L is landing gear and the cursor keys are thrusters).

    Congrats to Inga and Jhyrryl on your promotions! o7

    I can't rep you, but please take this thumb up as a good will gesture:

    That face of when you know you're messed up badly, but you also know you're too late to do anything about it so you go full ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    (By the way, for the sake of scientific knowledge, my Betty does a solid 222 m/s on fully-laden boost)

    I don't care what the next race is ... I'll be in the Asp.

    Given the renown outstanding braking performance of the Asp, if your intent is to nail yourself to the docking pad instead of bouncing off, this looks like a great plan!

    Just don't get under my ship when I'm landing!

    That's awesome! Put an excavator arm on it and it would be so Mad Maxish!

    Likewise:

    Shot roughly 19:00 GMT as I was arriving in my taxi Hauler.

    For some reason the Free Camers bindings for my HOTAS always revert to inverted roll and throttle Full Range in stead of Forward Only every time I log in, no matter how many time I correct it. Another ticket to do.

    Stern was still sleeping on the pad.
    Sorry if I wasn't paying attention. I was probably alt-tabbed out of the game, processing my run from last night.

    And then this happened:

    Do I get bonus points for ranking up? ;)

    Congratulations. That probably won't happen very often during a race

    Another round of applause to CMDR Jak.

    BTW, I apologise for hogging the pads this morning. Saw your conversation with CMDR Bruski this morning on EDDiscovery when shutting down my computer after my race video had uploaded.

    Video processed. Visible even with grainy resolution, 5 stages of grief in 5 seconds, and a mouthed "OH SH*T."




    Also, congrats to Inga and Jak!

    I'll be starting with a local favorite.

    Now I just need to do the math on whether the speed is worth the repair fee!

    Are you saying I'll never make it as an overly dramatic/expressive twitch streamer with the teenage crowd?! I'm crushed.

    I think it actually turned out to be a bug associated with my original request to dock, but thanks.

    Pft, that could have been much worse. Try again.
